SOURCE: Lens Error

first of all the manual is available on this site, in case you'll need it in the future. the manual says that if you have a "lense error" message it means the lense is obstructed, i'm guessing against it in your case, but its worth while checking to see if theres nothing jammed in its track. it's actually a known, and common problem with these small casios. i heard that a quick fix is that when it happens the camera battery has to be removed, and that should clear it, but the problem can also return, and after a while that trick won't do the trick any more. if you want to have it fixed while still in warranty don't wait to see if any of the common "blow air into the..." or "use some epoxy" fixes help you, you can try all that later. good luck

SOURCE: My EX-S5 says lense error

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

SOURCE: casio ex-z77/ lens error

you might have pushed the lens into the barrel. small lens barrel has 3 metal pins that ride inside the larger lens barrel as it twists. Pushing it sometimes cracks the plastic holding these 3 pins in. one way to fix it is to carefully disassemble the entire lens barrel. be careful...sometimes a part just snaps, or is already snapped. The easiest way would be to replace the lens assembly with a good one you can get from another camera like this. There are no spare parts for cams like this so you can try to get another cam that has a different damage other than the lens barrel.

SOURCE: When I press the on button, the lens comes out,

May be some dust particles have gone in the lens well between the body and the lens casing. Try to **** it out with the vacuum cleaner.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Lens making strange clicking noise when turned on or zoomed in.


If the noise wasn't there for 3 days and is there now, it can only get worse. I would return it for a replacement.

S220 Coolpix has a lens error problem, turn camera on tries to focus (Lens moves in and out making a weird noise) but comes up with a lens error problem


Did it drop? sounds like the motor is trying to move the lens as you need, but the lens has come out of its tracking. If there is no outside damage and you still have warranty left, you should get it replaced, otherwise it means opening it to place the lens back on its tracking, but this can be tricky.

My camera lens won't go back in and is making weird noises.


Since you said it makes noise when you turn it on, the gear system controlling the lens might be faulty. have it checked.
